Aroma is pear and citrus hops. Flavor is similar with some piney hop notes. Not nearly as hoppy as some IPAs, however. Thin and watery with a slightly astringent finish. Not great, but would be a refreshing lawnmower beer.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Draft @ Capones: Poured a copper color with a small head. The aroma was hops, citrus, and grass. The flavor was definitely hoppy with slight grapefruit and slight flowery taste. Overall, smooth IPA that doesn’t ruin my palate for the rest of the night.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
12oz bottle from Holiday. Pours light amber with a big, fizzy white head that settles nicely with good retention, spider web lace. Smells light citrusy, earthy hoppy with a slight malt presence. Tastes very good, light hoppy, citrusy sweet with just slight bitterness. Some malt, grainy and cereal sweet. Medium body, good carbonation.

3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Reddish-gold pour with a medium, off-white head. Evergreen hops, toffee, and rosemary on the nose. Citrusy hops predominate on the palate (which was a surprise after the piney aroma). Also pineapple. Nice IPA.

1.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 4/20
Tarry pine aroma. Unhazy lightly darker than pale yellow. No Head. Bitter soapy taste bud brunt . Eye pee aye. Terrible medication. Linger is easier said than done. Will not buy again. Too much for this lager lover.
